Small quaint restaurant tucked back from the street but great food and flavors; items marked as gf on the menu and waiter knowledgeable on gf options. I had the burger without cheese and added avocado—really great flavor esp with the basil aioli. My partner had the salmon (NZ) and said it was wonderful along with the potatoes as a side (he has no dietary restrictions) but the salmon dish was gf.

A lot of the menu can be made gf (they use lentil pasta), although I tried a salad. Very good, if on the expensive side.

Great gluten free pasta and fries. They have gluten free bun as well. My celiac daughter loved her pasta and she enjoyed some fries on the side. The staff and food quality was great. Can’t wait to go back again.

Very delicious food and knowledgeable staff. I got pasta for dinner and was confident that the restaurant was able to avoid cross contamination. Flourless chocolate cake was a highlight too!

Service/Safety: Knowledgeable staff, if they don’t know they will double check with the kitchen. They offered to cook the gf burger buns in a clean separate pan to prevent cross contamination. The gf pasta is boiled in clean separate water. I felt safe and did not get sick.

Menu: A lot of gluten-free options including soup, burgers, pastas, salads, etc

Food: Yummy! I tried a burger, pesto pasta, and some squash soup. All of them were very yummy especially the soup and burger.

Location: Tucked away in a little corner (not very crowded)

Flavors were great, and the pasta was cooked perfectly! They use Udi’s buns but were prepared better than we do at home. They make their own veggie patty for the burger, and the side options were fries or salad. The fryer is communal Soe my wife opted for salad that was extremely fresh.

Steak filet and half chicken were fairly plain with average sides for $34 each

Polenta with goat cheese $8 was good

Kids pasta was okay

For a $100 meal it was just okay

Went here at the spur of the moment after a long day of driving. Just wanted a light bite to eat, she got the house salad with a side of asparagus. No *gf on the menu but wait staff were knowledgeable and friendly. No croutons on the salad and dressing on the side. As a precaution.

Last night we waited 45 minutes after they said the wait would be 10-15 minutes. The food was overpriced and left us starving. Most of the gluten free food was not very tasty except for the pork which was good but not worth the cost. Also, the staff & clients could have been friendlier & more hospitable. After all, this isn't 5 star dining engulfed on a romantic tropical island. It's only "Carmel", get off your high horses...

It was very accommodating. Almost everything could be made gluten free. The only thing they didn't have was gluten free bread. They were aware of cross contamination and they told me that if I wanted pasta they would boil a new pot of water.
